Book: Don't Even Think About It
Author: Sarah Mlynowski

We weren't always like this.
We used to be average New York City high school sophomores.Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what's coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same.So stop obsessing about your ex. We're always listening.

This one boggled me and i refrained from staring it for a while. Even now in not sure.

On one hand we have The Unique Point of View, I've never encountered a book with "WE" POV so far. It was disorienting at firs but you get used to it quickly once you understand why the need of plural POV. The Characters weren't declared good or bad but each character possessed ether characteristic. I found them more complex and more realistic. Also i find easier to sympathize with every single one of them. The Story - i love mind reading stories, i love the perplexity of them, the pros and the cons of knowing everything everyone thinks and the noise that comes along with it (another plus: at no point i find my self eye-rolling and i think that's refreshing).

On the other hand The Ending really bothered me! It was not a bad ending, at all, it just ended abruptly. I got to know the characters, i got to love the characters and just when i started to care what happens - the story ended. This book would had much more sense if there was a sequel.

Anyways. That was my problem with this book. I was ready to give it all the praise up until the ending. I'm not sure did i loved this or did i hate it...? So i would recommend it but with caution and i seriously hope there is a sequel in planing...
